On the 16th November BLT attended the Launch party of the new government consultancy, RedQuadrant: New consulting for the public sector.
Red Quadrant, offer a fresh and effective approach to public sector consulting. They operate in an innovative associate basis. Unlike traditional consultancies that have to pay a large, permanent consulting staff, they have a team of around 30 independent consultants ‘on call’.
Unlike typical freelancers and interims, they don’t want to make themselves indispensable, but to make themselves redundant – leaving public sector managers with the right foundations and capabilities to deliver and drive change from within, over the long term. This approach is going to be vital in the forthcoming axing of public sector consulting budgets. As Rebecca Harding of Delta Economics said recently, smaller consultancies that carve out a specific niche, will survive this downturn; and that is what Red Quadrant have done.
